Wonderful beach with lots of wild life. Took a long walk down the beach and we saw six dolphins playing in the distance. While we were swimming saw a sea turtle. Lots of room to spread out on the beach. added plus ... They have restrooms and a place to wash the sand off your feet. I think it is... More

Sugar sand and beautiful emerald waters. This State Park is absolutely beautiful. Each campsite is fairly private with lots of greenery between each site. We loved this place with easy access to the beautiful beach just a short drive within the park. There was hardly anyone there and we were happy to see this unspoiled section with no buildings littering... More

The sand is a white powder! No kidding! I've never seen a beach like this -- it's amazing! Very beautiful, quiet, peaceful. The cabins at Grayton Beach State Park are magnificent as well!

Just to say that you've been to a coastal dune lake is pretty cool. My 6 year old quickly caught a largemouth bass about 1' long... right after he had caught a blue crab. That doesn't happen in many places on this earth! Right across the parking lot and dunes, my husband reels in a red drum (more than a... More

Hidden gem between Panama city beach and Destin. No hotels no crowds just sugar sand and emerald water.

We biked along 30A and stopped at as many beaches we could along the way. This beach was very pretty and had many dunes. It is also walking distance to Red Bar.

This is a wonderful park. It doesn't get very crowded. The only thing I find annoying is that a lot of professional photographers use the beach to take pictures of families. So all over the beach they are set up to photograph families. It's not horrible, or else I wouldn't give it a 5 star rating. The beach is beautiful... More

One of the most beautiful beaches in the country. They have all types of campsites plus a large coastal dune lake. The hiking trails are great and very unique. Plenty of great restaurants in the area.
